Just For Laughs Montreal: it begins

Packed. Flew. Landed. Shuttle shared with Frank Spadone and Jon Dore (and learned more about the Montreal Canadians than I ever wanted to know in the process). Now it’s off to the races!

It’s my 5th Just For Laughs, and before I even arrived I had plenty to bitch about — but more on that Monday. For now, I’m here to enjoy myself. Time to straighten my hair, grab some grub, and get back to the Hyatt in time to have a much-needed drink before tonight’s New Faces.

Updates to come whenever I can make ’em!

Sean McCarthy is here too, by the way — blogging for the Comic’s Comic, of course. Check it out.
